A salute, to the PPV King, and guy who brought boxing to the masses
in the 90s and kept it afloat into the 2000s.
Oscar De La Hoya
You may not like him as a fighter for whatever reason, but you know you were at a someones house watching when his fights were on.
Lets be real, the guy was just born to be a star. He turned his Olympic Gold medal, into a boxing empire.
His very first headlining PPV fight, was in his 18th pro bout.
People just wanted to see this guys fights. And, he did it all without the marketing schemes or internet.
Thank you Oscar, for making Saturday nights, fun!
